Altergaze, an affordable smartphone-based VR peripheral, launched a Kickstarter campaign yesterday. Designer Liviu Berechet Antoni is looking to raise £25,000 GBP to help start manufacturing the headset, which places two lenses around a smartphone and then displays supported apps in stereoscopic 3D. VRFocus recently spoke to Antoni about the product, the competition and the campaign.
In the below interview Antoni discusses designing the headset, which he hopes to ship in November 2014. The Kickstarter campaign comes with a range of rewards including the headset itself. VRFocus will continue to follow the Altergaze and report back on any new developments.
